"Did the Germans have free speech when Hitler came to power to enable them to speak out against the situation and what was happening? I think the answer to that would be no."

However, the reason for that was not legislation but the risk of having your head kicked in by the SA. Free speech laws are of no avail when the opposition has the people with guns (or owns most of the media).
